Cassidy it was declared that "the
use of motor vehicles by trainees on

busses, taxis, or as a passenger when
asked by the driver to participate in
passage." This rule will apply to
all students under the V-12 pro-

2nd OCS Term
To Be Extended
JAGS To Continue
Law, Staff Studies
Beginning with the second officer
candidate class, slated to report the
latter part of July, the term of the
officer candidate course will be ex-
tended from three to four months, it
was announced today by Col. Edward
H. Young, Commandant of the Judge
Advocate General's School here.
"The change is in keeping with the
newly-prescribed War Department
policy extending the duration of all
officer candidate schools to four
months," Colonel Young said.
The additional time allotted will
permit a more detailed training in
the broad field of military law and
develop more completely a study of
staff functions as they affect offi-
cers of the Judge Advocate General's
Four Fraternities Store
Valuables for Duration
Four fraternities, Phi Kappa
Psi, Phi Gamma Delta, Beta Theta
Pi, and Alpha Tau Omega, in the
last month have turned in private
collection of pictures, manuscripts,
periodicals, and some books to the
Michigan Historical Collections for a
safe depository during the war.
The Michigan Historical Collec-
tions are still offering to any frater-
nities and sororities duration space
for important records and materials.

Col. Morrisette Says Army
Is Proud of Its Court System

Judge !Advocate General's School
"Men in the Army who are famil-
iar with the workings of the Army
court martial system woold rather be
tried by a court martial than by any
other tribunal in the country. The
Army is proud of its court-martial
system and wants the people of the
nation to know about it," said Col.
James E. Morrisette, Chief of the
Military Justice Divisign of the
Judge Advocate General's Office as
he addressed the students at the
Judge Advocate General's School
Col. Morrisette pointed out that
the court-martial system is radically
different from the usual judicial sys-
tem found in this country, and is re-
pugnant to the average American's
idea of a court. Nevertheless no
criticism, in Congress or outside, has
been raised either as to the opera-
tion of courts-martial or as to the
great power entrusted to the Army
by Congress.
Courts-Martial Are Not Courts
"The fact that courts-martial are
really not courts at all, but merely
agencies of the President as Com-
mander-in-Chief for the enforce-
ment of discipline in the Army is not
generally understood. It has been
held by civilian courts time after
time that such military tribunals care
not subject to interference by the
judiciary as long as jurisdiction over
the person and subject matter is es-
tablished. Once a civil court has de-
termined in any proceeding that the
military tribunal has such jurisdic-
tion, the latter is supreme."
Another difference between civil
and military courts is the absence of
limitation -of jurisdiction in regard
to territory. In other words, there
is no problem as to where an accused
should be tried. If he commits an
offense in Siberia he may be tried in
the South Pacific. "I recall that at
the conclusion of the last war there
were many trials in New York of

. n a. . .

men accused of committing offenses
in France, Germany and Italy," Col.
Morrisette stated.
Soldiers Unconscious of Stern Code
However, despite the fact that the
millions of men now in the Army are
subject to a much sterner code of
law than ever in their civilian lives,
they are not consciously aware of it,
according to the speaker.
"The reasons for this attitude on
the part of the men in the Army are
obvious, I believe," he said. "We
have a democratic Army made up of
a cross section of our people. An
accused knows that he will be triedl
by his peers, and usually that those
who try him are more intelligent
than a civilian jury.
"Furthermore he knows that the
Army is in urgent need of manpower
and consequently he need not fear
that he will be unjustly convicted or
unfairly sentenced. Lastly he knows
that this is an American Army rep-
resentative of American manhood
and that nobody is going to pick on
JAGD Resembles Great Law Office
Col. Morrisette likened the Judge
Advocate General's department to a
law office with over 1,000 members
with branch offices all over the
globe. "I hope that it won't be long
before we can announce the opening
of offices in Berlin, Rome and To-
kio," he remarked. "In your work
as a Judge Advocate remember that
one of your most important func-
tions will be to prevent trials.
"Unless there is good reason for a
trial, a man should be on duty with
his unit. A soldier in the guard
house is a casualty just as much as
a wounded man in the hospital. But
if he is apparently at fault, try him
quickly, give him an adequate sen-
tence and get him back to duty as
soon as possible."
